Bugsy Malone, a firm favourite with adults and children, is the perfect vehicle for the talented Rattonians Youth Group.

Following on from the success of ‘Fame’ at Easter, the group takes to the Royal Hippodrome stage from October 30 to November 2.

The British movie, directed by Alan Parker, starred Jodie Forster as Tallulah at the tender age of 13. Set in New York in 1929, he story evolves around gangsters and flappers during the prohibition era.

At Fat Sam’s speakeasy there is much dancing and singing but Fat Sam himself, (James Tomlinson) is worried his rival Dandy Dan (Rhys Clarke) will try to take over.

Blousey Brown, (Grace Allen) is an aspiring singer, who has come for an audition, but Sam is too distracted. Bugsy (Alex Dry) meets Blousey when he trips over her luggage.

The show is filled with great music, plenty of comedy and lots of splurge! Bugsy is a great fun musical.

The Rattonians are committed to supporting The Royal Hippodrome Theatre and delighted to take their first youth show to this beautiful venue.

Tickets are £10 and £12, with performances 7.30p nightly and 2.30pm matinees on Thursday and Saturday - Eastbourne Theatres box offices or on 01323 412000.

The show is directed by Alex Adams, Choreography by Debbie Hackett and Musical Director Carl Greenwood.
